Ukraine: Correlative relationships between the markets of PPPs, grains, oilseeds. New trends

Ukraine has almost doubled production of grains and oilseeds over the past decade, from 50 MMT to 90 MMT. However, growing an abundant crop is not enough now, as priority is given to its quality and safety. This necessitates their control throughout the crop supply chain, from the growing stage to new-crop grain quality control, and then quality and safety control at storage, processing, and marketing. As the lion’s share of grain and oilseed complex products (in raw or processed form) are shipped for export, the harvest must meet international safety requirements.

The parameters requiring special attention include control over content of hazardous chemical compounds that are used as mineral fertilizers and PPPs during fieldwork and get into the environment and cultivated crops.

Such control is of particular importance when growing food and feed products intended for export to countries where content of pesticides, dioxins, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons is regulated legislatively.

The above restrictions may considerably complicate Ukrainian agricultural exports. To remain competitive, Ukraine’s market must be flexible and rapidly adapt to changing realities.

The study presents an analysis of the impact of currently used crop growing practices, including PPP application, on product safety. Minimizing the impact of hazardous substances on the environment and cultivated crops.
